Today I’m writing about the traditions we have in our family at Christmas.

We tend to start off by having a bit of a tiff over what we’re having for breakfast.In my family we ALWAYS had Quality Street and in the hubby’s family they had a cooked breakfast.Chocolate or fry-up?No contest in my eyes plus I really can’t eat a full english before putting away Turkey and all the trimmings!

One of the only times my 17 year old will spend time with me is to watch the Dr Who Christmas Day special.It’s something we’ve done for several years.We leave the others to snooze off the monster dinner while we sit in the dark – has to be dark and watch.Lately he has to be surgically removed from his phone so will be interesting to see if he can leave the thing alone!!

I take the kids to the panto every year in Cardiff.I think I enjoy it more than them if I’m honest – oh yes I do!My Mum has come with us every year since – well time began I think -but this year she will be away on holiday so she won’t be coming 😦

Despite everyone else in my house hating Xmas pudding – what is wrong with these people?!I always go on a hunt for a “free from” one as I have a nut allergy.Harder than it sounds!Mind you I found some individual ones at Morrison’s last year and accidentally put 10 in the trolley.Has to have cream on it too,none of that brandy muck mind you.Good old fashioned double cream for me.
